This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: John 8:32 (ESV)
Today I want you to know there is power in being unscripted.
Recently I talked about how Peter let go of his past, began to trust God evermore, and experienced the Holy Spirit working through his life. This is evident in the moment Peter boldly confronted the religious council of his day to tell them he had healed a man who had been lame for decades. Most importantly, he told them that he had healed the man in the name of Jesus Christ.
The council was threatened by Peter’s power. However, he still stood before them with a bold spirit–even though he knew that they had the authority to take his life right there on the spot.
When I think about the boldness of Peter’s spirit, it reminds me of the time I visited a church and the pastor remained scripted. She had a great message, but she chose to read from her notes the entire time.
To make her message even more rousing and inspirational, I kept waiting for her to put her notes down so she could speak to my soul and tell us all what God had told her to tell us that morning. Yet for her entire message, she remained scripted.
Sometimes before we can feel a real conviction to boldly confront a situation or person, we must have the fortitude to confront ourselves. We must be able to trust our own voice, to let our hair down, and to allow the words that God put in our hearts to come out, knowing that everything is going to be okay.
